    You made my day, Kathy! Thanks for the giggle and the reminder that I needed to go check for more of these Royal Academy cartoons on You Tube. Did you see the one Sir Kenneth Robinson did on education? LOVE!

    This is a hoot! My husband teaches English as a second language to international students. I’m passing this on to him. He will fall off his chair!

    Great find, Kathy. I particularly like the “clitoris was still a source of confusion” bit where he points at the stick-figure’s foot!

    Cheers
